The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: November 12, 2014, 09:30 AM »
Today's Daily Deal at Entertainment Earth is 50% off a selection of The Clone Wars toys from Hasbro. 

Sale includes eight different figures and the Clone Republic Attack Shuttle.  The sale ends at 11:59pm PST tonight or while supplies last!

I don't really understand the difference though between these, and like those kit figures we've seen too that are available on pre-order places for fair prices.

The S.H. Figuarts figures are action figures.  High quality, fully painted, uber-articulated action figures.  The S.H. Figuarts are put out through Bandai's Tamashi Nations brand which represents their top quality figures for collectors.

The others, the 1/12 Vader and Stormtrooper are model kit figures.  Injection molded, cut it from the sprue and assemble it yourself, model kit.  Complete with water transfer decal kit and Tetoron sealant.  NOT for someone looking to open a package and stick a figure on a shelf.

A late report coming out of the Tamashii Nations 2014 event - apparently prototypes of  the following S.H. Figuarts figures were on display with NO PHOTOS ALLOWED signs:
- Another Han and Luke (NOT the ANH versions linked in the post above)
- Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker
- Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike
- Darth Maul vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui Gon Jin 

Time to comb the web for contraband photos. ;)

The FF reboot just keeps on giving...  meet Victor Domashev, anti-social programmer; aka "Doom" on the internet.

My FF loving pal has already sworn off this flick with the casting changes made to Marvel's "first family", can't wait to hear his 45 minute tirade on how changing Victor Von Doom is the new worst thing they can possibly do to the movie... ;)

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 6

Thought I'd point out this story at (which I first saw via Yakface).

After looking again at the one I opened last week, I can confirm that the #03 Vader does indeed have a taller neckpost.

As long as you don't get a bad head cast (like I did), it looks like this new #03 Darth Vader fixes the "head falls off when you look at it wrong" issue.

Well, I did my part in ruining society by putting my outdoor Christmas lights up yesterday.  I haven't set the timer to turn them on yet, but I did put them up on the house. 

And glad I did because we're looking at 6"-14" of snow over the next 48 hours and trying to get on that ladder in the icy snow and cold to put them up sucks..  :-\

Just guessing on the timeline, I think the show takes place only a short time after ROTS...maybe a couple of years.

Straight from the official site...

"Star Wars Rebels, set five years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, tells the story of the Rebellion’s beginnings while the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Star Wars Rebels airs Monday Nights at 9p/8c on Disney XD."

I've said it before - I'm 100% convinced they picked this timeline to be able to have 25yo Han bump into the Rebels... or to have 14yo Ezra meet 13yo Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia or whatever.  ;)

We went to see Big Hero 6 this weekend... no surprise, all four kids loved it.  I loved it too.  Great story, very fun.  A lot more fun than a lot of summer blockbusters I've seen in fact.  Boys are hoping for a DisneyXD series as they want more Baymax...

Hey, SAMCRO isn't into meth, in fact anti-meth was a big part of early seasons...  illegal gun-running and porn, sure, but no meth dealing.  Oh, and a brief perion of drug muling for Mexican cartels.  But no meth. ;)

Decided to return the Tonnika Sisters to my ANH wishlist this year...

In the end, it's probably a wasted vote but part of me would really like to know if Disney LFL will be as stubborn about them as George LFL was.

9. Princess Leia (Tantive IV)
10. Tonnika Sister (#wastedvote?)

A few people PM'd me this week asking where my boys and I watched "Out of Darkness" since it hadn't aired yet, so I thought I'd share...

I'm not sure how the other cable/dish providers work, but Comcast/XfinityTV posts most of the DisneyXD animated series episodes on-demand the week ahead of the air date, including Star Wars Rebels. 

For example, "Out of Darkness", the 11/10 episode of Rebels, was posted for viewing on 11/4. That's how we watched it on Wednesday night. ;)

CollectionDX has posted updated pics for the S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures.

Still no pricing info yet, but it sounds like pre-orders should be going up soon...
